The Makeover Continues…

Hi Gang,

I’ve spent the last few days at the house creating 2D files of the new console and new lower cockpit panels that will be CNC’d.  It’s a difficult process but it’s slowly coming along.  In between I’ve been removing all the 1″ glass tiles and other greeblies from the existing panels.  It’s heart breaking but necessary…

Lots More to Follow!  Stay Tuned!

Panel Makeovers Continue!

Hi Gang,

Got a late start to the panels this weekend.  Life just seems to get in the way…  I’ve finished two panel in preparation for adding all the LEDs and the 1″ acrylic tiles.

Stay Tuned!  More boring tile removing pics to follow!  ; )

Panels Get a Makeover

Hi Gang,

Similar to the center console, it was decided to move in a slightly different direction and finish what we’ve started before starting a whole new cockpit.  The existing cockpit will have all the glass tiles (1″ sq buttons) removed and replaced with 1″ acrylic tiles that will be backlit.  This should make a HUGE difference.

I forgot my drill at the house so I had to use a cordless drill with a battery that was needing recharging.  I wasn’t able to drill all the holes, but I was successful in removing all the blue and white tiles from the doorway arch panel.

There are LOTS more updates coming very soon.  We had our first meeting since Phoenix and several decisions were made as to what direction to take…  We ask that you hang on… things are about to get even more interesting as we plan for Star Wars Celebration next year!

Phoenix Festival: Part I

Hi Gang,

We headed south early Friday morning with trailer in tow and a quad laser cannon (pointing at our heads) nestled in the back of the SUV…  Unloading and setup was a breeeze.  I took the time to change out some of the nuts to a T-Nut making assembly much easier!  We sailed through the most difficult part of the setup in record time.

Enjoy

More pics coming!
